Martin Havlat is now a member of the Wild but being spurned by the Blackhawks on July 1 has clearly left him with a bit of a grudge. This afternoon on his Twitter account, he offered some somewhat cryptic comments on the fact the Bowmans have taken over after Dale Tallon was forced out of the GM seat in Chicago.
“I guess everyone saw what happened to Dale…. yes, the story is starting to come out but it’s just the tip of the iceberg,” he wrote at about 1:30 p.m. today.
Two minutes later, Havlat offered: “Lot’s of people are telling me to stay quiet but shouldn’t the fans know the truth? It’s your loyalty, season ticket money and emotions here.”
And, then, finally: “What do you people think? Interested to know your thoughts.”
That’s all he’s said to this point, but maybe that’s enough. It’s easy to infer that, when Havlat wasn’t offered more than a one-year contract, he feels it wasn’t Tallon’s doing — despite the fact he was then the GM.
